Congress rolls over for Bush (again)

Human rights? What human rights? If W says you're an enemy combatant, your ass is off to Gitmo. Do not pass GO, do not collect $200, and do not expect to see the light of day again. No appeals, no recourse. And the definition of "enemy combatant" has been expanded to mean pretty much anything Bush wants it to mean. So far, this doesn't apply to US citizens, although it does apply to non-citizens living here legally.

For all the religious right's screaming about women's rights and gay rights bringing about the end of American civilization, it's one of their own who is dismantling democracy right in front of our eyes. I hope they're proud of him. I'm not.
